Leroy King detained for extradition today

The police have arrested the local fraud accused in the Stanford Ponzi scheme, Leroy King, as the extradition process continues to drag on.

Lawmen picked up the former chief of the Financial Services Regulatory Commission earlier today “for extradition purposes”, according to police sources.

His lawyer, Dr. David Dorsett, confirmed this moments ago.

He also told OBSERVER media that he filed an appeal to the recent case that King lost in the Court of Appeal, and he ought not to removed with a case pending.

King loses extradition appeal, what’s next?

An appeal was yesterday struck down for Leroy King, the embattled former administrator of the Financial Services Regulatory Commission (FSRC), who is seeking to stop his extradition to the United States to face 11 fraud related charges stemming from the US$7 billion Ponzi scheme by Allen Stanford.

The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court handed down the decision during a sitting in St. Kitts. The ruling came several months after Antigua and Barbuda’s Director of Public Prosecutions, Anthony Armstrong, and King, through his lawyers, argued against and for the appeal respectively.

But, the legal journey which started several years ago, can be further prolonged if King appeals again, this time to the Privy Council. Efforts to reach his lawyer Dr. David Dorsett for comment last evening were unsuccessful.

So far though, King’s lawyers have not made any application for a stay of execution to stop the authorities in Antigua and Barbuda from turning him over to U.S. officials to finally face the court in that country which issued a warrant for him since 2009.

District Court Denies Motions for Leave to Intervene

On May 7, 2018, the District Court denied twelve pending motions to intervene filed by Stanford Investors. The Court held that Movants failed to establish a right to intervene because (1) their interests are adequately represented by the Receiver, the Official Stanford Investors Committee, the court-appointed Examiner, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and (2) given the Receiver’s claims process, disposition of the action does not impair or impede Movants’ ability to protect their interests.
